No, strict diets aren't very useful or sustainable for the vast majority of people. Statistics show that there is only a 1-in-10 compliance rate over time. Losing weight quickly via crash dieting typically results in a "rebound effect" where you gain all of the weight back and then some. Of course, if there's a specific style of eating that you enjoy (such as vegetarian or paleo), it can easily be incorporated into the program lessons.
